We are offering Art Therapy group sessions for mothers with young babies, mothers with toddlers and seniors over 65. New groups are starting in May – on Monday afternoons or Fridays and cost only $5 per session to cover the cost of art materials.
Art Therapy is where a person/client makes art in a therapy/counselling relationship. Being ‘good at art’ is not important. Sometimes it is easier to express, describe or talk about difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences by making art in a safe environment. Additionally, strong emotions can be translated through the use of materials, metaphor and symbols. The art therapist can support a person to explore the art object as a powerful container where new meanings and understandings can be created.
These sessions are led by our Master of Art Therapy intern Kate Scholes who is also mentored by our art therapist-in-residence Anne Buckingham. To enrol your interest in attending a suite of sessions (6-8 weeks, once a week), please contact Kate at
